A beautiful and very decorative sideboard, painted in a shabby chic style with chalk paint.

This solid mahogany antique sideboard, around 100 years old, has fabulous carving and detailing. The two main cupboard doors have acanthus leaf and lily pad carving. The leaf motif is reflected in the solid brass drawer and door handles, which are original to the piece.

The sideboard has three, hand cut dovetail joint constructed, drawers and three cupboards.

The top of the sideboard has had the original varnish sanded off and has been waxed with clear bees' wax. To provide superior paint adhesion, the original varnish has also been removed from the base prior to painting. The base has been painted with Annie Sloan 'Chateau Grey' which is a lovely vintage French style grey with a green hue. The drawer fronts have been painted with Autentico 'Paris White' chalk paint, which is a subtle cream colour. The paintwork has been distressed and waxed with two coats of clear bees' wax.

The baize cloth within the top right hand drawer is quite worn and damaged, but could be replaced. The top has drilled holes, where a mirror would have been previously attached, and the back board of the sideboard isn't original to the piece. The bowl, shown in the photographs, is not included in the sale.

137cm wide, 90cm high, 48.5cm deep.
